Recognition for compliance with international standards
Intertek has awarded the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), the largest utility company in the Middle East and North Africa, two ISO certificates for complying with international standards of ISO/IEC 20000-1:2018 for Information Technology Service Management and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 for Information Security Management.
SEC had initially been granted two ISO certifications from Intertek two years ago. These were awarded for continuing to uphold the global standards and expanding its scope across 68 different services within the company’s Information Technology and Digital Transformation.
Using the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards helps organisations manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to the company by third parties.
An information security management system is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. ISO/IEC 20000-1 promotes the adoption of a service management system to provide value and consistency for both the customer and the service provider.
Waqas Ahmed, Area Manager for the Eastern Region, Intertek presented the award to Zaid A. Al-Jendel, Executive Director of SEC and the Senior Management team during a special ceremony held at SEC headquarters in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
“Having these two certifications from Intertek demonstrate that we are steadfast about ensuring that we always implement best-in-class management system practices and provide high-quality services,” remarked Al-Jendel.
“SEC is committed to providing high-quality IT and communication services across Saudi Arabia based on the highest international standards,” commented Sandeep Vig, Director, Business Assurance—MENAP and India.
